鈴のそら音 | Suzu no Sorane

A collection of stories about a certain book store.

Title: 鈴のそら音
Romaji: Suzu no Sorane
Translation: The empty sound of bell
Length: 31:52
Release date: 10/05/2015 (Reitaisai 12)

Cover characters: Mamizou Futatsuiwa, Kosuzu Motoori


The title could be a reference to “Koto no Sorane”, a short novel by Souseki Natsume. This album is based on the manga Touhou Suzunaan ~ Forbidden Scrollery, with every track named as a couple of chapters and the lyrics inspired by those. Each track is an arrangement of more than one original theme (with some very unusual combinations) and it’s one of the quietest albums in the entire discography.

Note: the romanized titles of the songs follow those of their namesake chapters and they might conflict with those in official BUTAOTOME sources.
